Reviewer: Third Coast Queso - - January 20, 2011
Subject: This is the Beginning of SCI 2000...
This is where it all started in 2000 - dubbed the 'Terrapin Family Winter Incidents' at the quaint Wool Warehouse of Mirrors in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A collaboration between SCI and Terrapin Productions for the second year in a row brought a stellar two-night run event to Albuquerque in the last weekend of January to start off the Winter 2000 Tour.

As I recall, the venue was laid out in various sections/ rooms with one room being a family/ kids zone, another being an art gallery where several paintings, posters, and artwork were hung up on the walls for sale by Michael Everett (he was in attendance, signing posters), and the larger theater-like space where the stage was set up. There were colorful, hand-crafted tickets with artist drawings of owls and wolves on them for this event and beautiful, winter-esque decorations adorning the place. Really nice backdrops of these owls and wolfs that seemed to become a partial theme of Winter Carnival 2000.

The electricity and vibe in the air was festive and you could tell the boys were pumped to be back on tour and were ready to unleash.

It is my understanding that these were some of the first shows where Kyle was using his new synthesizer rig and IMHO this instantly evolved the sound of the band and allowed them to truly stretch out into new sonic realms that hadn't quite been ventured into before by this band.

In my mind, these shows epitomize that moment in time when the band really started to turn into the beast it would become during the summer and fall tours of that year. The "Impressions > Bigger Isn't Better > White Freightliner Blues" sequence to end the 1st set is a prime example of this. You can hear Kyle experimenting with his new synth toy while Billy uses the slide to create a euphoric space and sound...

The second set has the boys flying out of the gate with a stellar "Round the Wheel > Drums > Rivertrance" sequence. You can hear the excitement as they take the stage and roll through the gouda - making animal noises at times during Round the Wheel.

These were the nights I got officially hooked on this band. I know there are many, many amazing shows from 2000 but these should not be missed. Another underrated run in a fantastic year of SCI that should be added to anyone's collection as this is where 2000 begins for SCI...

"How you Feeling? It feels like you're feeling good..." - Billy, before Set I begins (Classic!).
